Now only one step is left between the ICC ODI World Cup trophy and the Indian team. Team India will have to face the Australian team in the final match, who may not have had a good start to the tournament but have managed to win their last eight matches. In such a situation, the Indian team coming on the field under the leadership of Rohit Sharma will have to show its best performance in this match also, so that it can win the title. However, Steve Smith, a part of the Australian team, can become a big threat for Team India in this match, in which his record against India till now has been very good.
Smith performs brilliantly against India in ICC knockout matches
Although Steve Smith’s bat is seen speaking fiercely against the Indian team in all three formats of cricket, but in ICC knockout matches it goes to a completely different level. Smith played an inning of 105 runs in 93 balls in the semi-final match against India in the 2015 World Cup. After this, in the final match of the second edition of the World Test Championship, while Steve Smith scored unbeaten 121 runs in the first innings of the match against the Indian team, he managed to score 34 runs in the second innings. In such a situation, Smith can definitely become a big threat for Team India in this title match. However, till now Smith’s form has not been very good in this World Cup, in which he has scored only 364 runs in 9 innings at an average of 37.5, in which 2 half-centuries have been seen with his bat.
Smith’s average is more than 50 against India in ODIs
If we look at Steve Smith’s record against India in the ODI format, it is quite impressive. Smith has so far batted in 4 innings of 28 ODI matches against India and scored 1306 runs at an average of 54.42, during which he has also played five centuries and six half-centuries. Apart from this, if we look at Smith’s record in the ODI matches played in India, he has managed to score 554 runs in 13 innings of 16 matches at an average of 42.62, which includes one century and four half-centuries.
